No, Hopefully I'm comin IN haha. Oh don't mind me it is just one of those days hahahaha.
B) the animated background is a FEATURE in 8.1 so again, just be quiet and stop suggesting MS is stealing stuff from Mac.
I just saw the word "Springboard Series" and I was wondering WHY it was being used.
Maybe it is the name of the series of articles the author made, in that context, i'll drop any objections. But in reference to M$ OSes, the use is confusing, because of it's a specific and significant part of iOS and Only iOS. In Windows, it is called Explorer, it's called something else in other OS's
I just don't like the use of coined phrases- It confuses the reader (me, in this case). But in any case, it's the use of Apple Specific Phrases to describe something wholly unrelated. Any other casual reader, after glancing at the title, may initially think the same thing I thought.
I just want to add, I am the LAST person to go on a Pogrom regarding "Apple Design and Name theft" - It was just this use of the word Springboard, used in a article regarding an OS. Otherwise, I can care less if Android or other Phones steal every aspect of Apple design and functionality, it is just a compliment to Apple if it is true anyway. And, I love it when Apple loses some big Court Case regarding "Design Theft" - They simply cannot copyright or Trademark everything in the world which they seem to want to do sometimes.
Springboard series is a newsletter that Microsoft publish and has been available for years to Technet Subscribers.
Oh, by the way I have posted several times over the past couple of years on the "Seven Forums", and here on the "Eights" about this Newsletter and how you can get it via e-mail from Microsoft.
Have a nice day and remember if you read and click on a source that is provided you can learn a lot more. . .
I love how they are touting booting to desktop and the ability to run multiple apps on multiple monitors as new features. I have been doing this in windows for years.
